We are excited to share with you the news that Café Inkaterra, located a stone’s throw away from Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, was included in the Premios Summum 2017. The eighth edition of the annual gastronomic event named Café Inkaterra one of the ten best restaurants in the Cusco region. To our delight, Café Inkaterra was the only restaurant in Machu Picchu Pueblo to be included in this category.
Peruvian food is emblematic of the history and traditions in Peru. At Inkaterra we’re excited to see our country becoming increasingly recognised for its visionary cuisine. The diversity of the culinary masterpieces are reflective of our vibrant culture and have secured us with a firm place on the international culinary scene.
This year around 5,000 people voted for their culinary favourites in 22 categories that encompassed gastronomic excellence, outstanding chefs and quality of service. Menus were also taken into consideration, as was the service in the restaurant. With an initial 1,000 restaurant nominees, the number was reduced to only 300, which were then put to the vote in their respective categories.
Café Inkaterra not only offers a dining experience but it is also a destination in itself, resting under the traditional Amazonian palm-thatched roof, it overlooks the Vilcanota River. A peaceful haven away from the crowds at Machu Picchu Pueblo, Café Inkaterra encourages guests to kick back and relax in the natural surroundings.
Both the cuisine and design are reflective of traditional Andean culture with a contemporary twist, a fusion we strive to create to offer our guests a unique, yet authentic experience.
